WelbeHealth, an operator of PACE programs across California, announced its upcoming expansion into the greater Fresno area.
PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a longstanding Medicare and Medicaid program that provides comprehensive medical and social services enabling older adults to live in the community instead of a nursing home or other care facility.
“We’re thrilled to help seniors across our area live more independently in their homes and communities,” said Paola Pouponneau-Nisbett, executive director. “Our comprehensive care empowers seniors to live longer and better.
The program will launch under a home-based care model to serve seniors during the pandemic. The organization will offer open houses next Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
WelbeHealth’s first Fresno-area participants will enroll with the program on Nov. 1.
